“Great tour, kid friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

This tour is fantastic. We went in the tour guide's 4WD, but obviously you can tag along in your own (if you have one). We have 3 kids aged 6, 4 and 2 and they all loved it - the 4WD takes up to 2 car seats, although we only needed the 1, as the back bench seat was fine for the older 2. The kids loved the ride down to Samurai beach, but the real treat was the Anna Bay sand dunes themselves, they truly are a natural wonder and Bruce's knowledge was second to none. The sand boarding is fun, our 2 year old loved sitting on the board with me as we zoomed down even the steepest of dunes! Overall, a great day out and would highly recommend it!

“Bush Beach & Dunes Tag A Long”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

My friend and i didn't know what to expect from 4wd Tag a Long Tours in Port Stephens, from the minute we met the laughing was none stop as to the excellent tuition he gave about driving in the bush on the sand or up the sand dunes.
Both my friend & I were inexperienced but had a great day thanks to our new best friend Bruce.

I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in a touch of 4 wheel driving, all up the trip took just under 4 hours and would definitely do it again.

Bruce also has other trips available which we are already looking at doing.

Thanks Bruce for a fantastic day

“Good Fun and Inspiring!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Love our tour guide: friendly, humorous, knowledgeable and attentive. My mom, who is over 60 years old, dared not to slide down the big sand dune like my uncle and I did, so in order not to waste what she had paid for, he encouraged her to try out a mini dune. The close-to-vertical 4WD drive down the dunes was real fun, and in case our adrenaline was not high enough in the first "dive", our guide made sure we were thoroughly drenched in excitement in the second "dive".
Both the ocean view and the desert view were magnificent. The sheer presence among the dunes makes one reflect on the uncertainty and uncontrollable aspects of life as the ever-changing dunes.

“A Great Mix of Sand and Surf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

This tour is suitable for anyone who likes a bit of adventure in the safest of hands. We took the Beaches and Dunes tag along tour, having little 4wd experience before this trip. From the moment we met the owner/operator, Bruce, in the carpark we knew we were in for a fun day. Personality plus, which is just what you need when dragging a group of randoms round for almost 4 hours. The tour itself was excellent, covering 4wd skills, a trip into the national park to a lovely swimming, snorkelling and fishing spot (have been coming to the Bay for 30 something years and didn't know about it), and some beach driving along Samurai Beach. Then off into the sand dunes (Devil's Playground) for more 4wd lessons and the chance to go up and over some 40 degree dune faces ourselves, starting with the babies and finishing with the BIG one. A bit of sandboarding, some more laughs and we were finished for the day. Shout Bruce a Caramel Magnum at the servo when you refill your tyres, and he will be yours forever (lol). If you have a CB in your vehicle you will enjoy the day more, as Bruce points out interesting features along the way, as well as providing lots of banter and laughs. The other guys on our trip had no CB and I felt like they missed out a little bit due to this.
